Hi everyone, I've had about 4 hallucinations, 1st one at the market I seen a little boy next to me, I heard him say my name, I turned around he was just staring not saying anything, I turned around for a sec then turned bk he was gone, 2nd was whenHb was driving I seen a car stopped in front, I panicked. HB said the car is not on the road its parked, 3rd was I was driving and I seen a car stopped on the side as I was going by I seen little feet from the back running towards the street, I swerved a little and scared my 17 yr old daughter, she said no one was there.
I have been taking Bacoflen for about 3mos, I wonder if this causing my symptoms? Or a new symptom?. I have a DR appt on Dec 14, I will tell him my experiences. 
I also, have been having a little pressure/slight pain on both ears, I wonder if this may related, I've never had any ear problems. Has anyone had any Hallucinations w/this med.

Sunshine . . . I agree with Carol . . . DON'T drive and DO call the doc. You shouldn't be alone either . . . go to the ER if you can't talk to your doc . . . or at least call them. That pressure in your head sounds urgent. Not to scare you . . . but better safe than sorry.

Post when you get a chance sis.

Thanks okie, I read it, and I know now it must be the med. Last mo. I seen a new Dr due to new insurance, I told him I will need more meds and all he gave me was Tylenol w/cod for pain, I told him last DR told me to stop taking that because it may upset my stomach even more, but he still gave it to me.
Dr cld back a few days later and sched. new appt for Dec 14.

Last few weeks I've been missing dosages due to wanting to make them last and only taking the Bacoflen when I have pain along w/ Relafin. I just ran out this week. I will call him today, will let you al know what happens.

Thanks, AlwaysRosie, I will let HB know if gets worse and have him take me the ER.

Sunshine, I'm glad you are calling your doc. Like Carol and Rosie said, this is nothing to mess around with and can be dangerous. I had a really bad reaction to a med my doc wanted me to try and ended up having hallucinations from it.

Let us know what happens.

Take care
